Lying on the Internet, a Felony?

The Senate Judiciary Committee have reviewed expanding a law that will make lying on the internet a felony ,and will allow private parties to file civil suits .



So Fox ,CNN will be trouble.

Jokes aside ,it sounds pretty ridiculous really and near impossible to police ,and could also backfire on government surely as they tell constant lies online ?

Plus it means no more alias names online like here at ATS ,would we all have to give our real names and address ,and does this leave you more open to stalkers and weirdos ?
And how would this effect other country's around the globe ?

How about lying on national tv when giving a state of the union address?

Im more concerned with Nigerian Princes with buckets of money for me than I am with some loser trying to convince me he's a lion tamer and international man of mystery and yet I dont think those laws are going to keep me from getting emails starting with : "Greetings Friend. I wish to make you a once in a life time offer"

HA!


everything is illegal. there are more law & statutes than lawyers can keep up with, even though many specialize in 1 specific area of law.

in your home workshop area - collected bits of wire, batteries, some Radio Shack parts & pieces, electrical tape, a few different tools like wire cutters - oh no! bomb making material! off to jail.

in your wallet - your drivers license (which you got at 16, 17?) is maybe off 1-2 inches, 'X' amount of LBS? whoops! falsified documents. off to jail.

in your garage - some empty plastic jugs, duct tape, leftover copper pipe from a repair job? - great ooglie mooglie! items used to make paraphernalia for smoking substance. into the klink you go.

everything is illegal. we can all be jailed at the drop of a hat.

No...:
That would only happen if any of the other articles you mentioned fell out it, and a cop witnessed the incident.


I enjoyed your post!


See ya,
